There is a good chance that if you are not a surfer, you have never heard of Tavarua island. On the other hand, if you are a surfer I would be shocked if you have not heard of Tavarua island as it is home to some of the best surf spots on earth. The tiny heart shaped which you can walk around in about 15 minutes is not only visited by surfers but couples and families searching for a vacation in pure paradise. In this post I’ll highlight some of the best things Tavarua island has to offer.
The Amazing Surf
Because the surf is the main attraction, I need to start here. There are 2 main breaks that are known world wide. Restaurants sits right outside the island and is a perfect barreling left hand reef break. Cloudbreak however requires a short boat ride out from the island which is well worth due to it often being called the best wave in the world. Cloudbreak has played host to many WSL surf contests over the years providing the worlds best surfer a dream like canvas to preform on. If you are a surfer, Cloudbreak is probably already on your bucket list for good reason.
Being located in the middle of the pacific ocean, Tavarua of course has world class fishing for any skill level. There are local guides on the island that will take you out any time to go catch your own dinner.
The native tribe on Tavarua have long had the reputation on being the nicest most welcoming people on earth. They greet each group of need visitors with a kava ceremony (a local drink made of kava root). They are there to help better your stay in any way as their entire income relies on tourists enjoying their stay and returning.
If you can afford to stay here you really can’t go wrong. Check out the video below to see a great idea of why surfers from around the world travel to Fiji.
